Camcorders use of the back with infrared remote control? Optical fiber?
Frage von Paul*Berlin: April 2010
So, I want my camcorder (Panasonic HDC-SD300 operate) from the tripod handle with the infrared remote control, as with more professional cameras Lanc.
Only problem is that the cam its infrared sensor directly under the front has the lens, so it's not really possible that the infrared beam reaches the sensor. Although this is still feasible in small spaces because the beam of reflected walls is, but if no wall in front of the camcorder is, does not work. I have tried to attach a wire s.einem little aluminum foil, which reflects the beam to the sensor, but in practice really is not - it bends too fast and the infrared beam strikes the reflector is not necessarily synonymous.
My idea was now to try it with optical fiber, that is, I would stick to a fiber s.der remote control, which then leads under the Lens.
Does it work? Does anything about this? And where can I get about 30 cm optical fiber. And above all, how can I ensure that the light beam is really his way into the fiber?

something like that? http://hv20.com/showthread.php?t=364
